Onyango wins Goalkeeper of the Season Award

Mamelodi Sundowns custodian Denis Onyango finished the 2020/21 PSL campaign on a high note.

The Ugandan custodian was crowned the season’s best in the goalkeeping department.

The 36-year-old Uganda legend had a good run between the sticks.

He managed 15 clean sheets from the 25 league matches he played for the Brazilians.

As a result, he played a major role in helping Masandawana set a new record.

They became the first team to win the league in the PSL era for the fourth consecutive time.

Hard season for Onyango

But it was not an easy campaign for Onyango owing to injuries.

Kennedy Mweene had to step in to deputise for the experienced goalkeeper.

“It was one hell of a season hampered with injuries but managed to sail through,” Onyango said after winning the award.

“I dedicate this award to my family.”

“Would like to thank the people who have worked with me, who have built me, my head coaches.”

“Our goalkeeper coach, my teammates, and my fellow goalkeepers. We won,” he further added.

Meanwhile, his teammate Peter Shalulile won the PSL Footballer of the Season and Player’s Player of the Season accolades.
